Here are five things you need to know on this Thursday evening:

Community College coming to Sioux Falls

Changes are happening at the University Center in Sioux Falls. It’s now going to be a community college – the first of its kind in the state, but tuition may be higher than going to a four-year university. That’s because South Dakota won’t support the system and now officials are turning to the Sioux Falls community for help.

Details on partnerships: Brady Mallory reports how the city and private partnerships could help.

Student reaction: Don Jorgensen has a report on KELOLAND News at 6.

In-Depth: Bob Mercer reports from Pierre.

A divided community

The flooding nightmare is far from over for people in south-central KELOLAND.

One area hit especially hard is Niobrara, Nebraska.

A report from Midday in KELOLAND:

Sarah McDonald has been covering this story all day. Here are a few of her posts from social media:

Road closures

More road closures in Eastern Sioux Falls on Friday.

Southeastern Avenue will be closed southbound from 26th Street to Klondike Trail.
This is all part of the 26 street project. KELOLAND News will continue to follow this and the impacts to commuters from the eastern side of the city.

Find a detour: The city has published this map of detour options.

Why it matters: This intersection is a major connection between the southeast part of Sioux Falls and downtown and is impacting many people’s commute to work.

Levitt at the Falls on track


You’ve probably heard by now about the Levitt Shell soon to have its first concert in downtown Sioux Falls. In Thursday’s Eye on KELOLAND, we’re taking a closer look at the venue and what it will mean for the community and you’ll hear from two members of a band set to play the venue, too.

Fur Friday

Brookings police are helping shelter animals find forever homes. It’s called Fur Friday. Here is last week’s post:

KELOLAND’s Kelli Volk will have this story on KELOLAND News at 10.
